New French Poster for Avatar & 3 Hour Runtime Confirmed
Here's our first look at the final poster design for James Cameron's Avatar. They essentially added a lush background and half of Jake Sully's face onto the teaser poster. Our friends at Awards Daily are right - this looks a bit too similar to the Benjamin Button posters, but oh well. It's now an exact month from when Avatar will hit theaters, which means the hype should really be growing. In related news, SlashFilm found an interview with composer James Horner where he confirmed that the runtime would be nearly 3 hours. Will this poster with half-faces and an orange glow actually convince audiences to catch this in theaters?
Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine on the planet Pandora who, as an Avatar - a human mind in an alien body - finds himself in a desperate fight for his survival and that of the indigenous beings called Na'vi.
Avatar is both written and directed by Oscar winning visionary filmmaker James Cameron, of Piranha II, The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, True Lies, and Titanic previously. He has been developing the technology to make this movie for the last 10 years. 20th Century Fox is bringing James Cameron's Avatar to both IMAX and regular theaters in 3D around the world on December 18th.
